I stayed for 6 nights in October in the Arena hotel. I was in Istanbul partly for business and partly private. I liked the location in the old part of the town, quite near to the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, and Blue Mosque (200 - 300m) very much. The tram station is about 400m to walk and easy to reach. The...

Arena hotel was quite a new experience for me and my family. We normally choose big 4-5 star hotels to guarantee the service. Because of the reviews this hotel received we decided to try it out. And it was the best choice. Its proximity to many historical sites made it the optimum choice. In addition, the staff there are not... More

We spent a week at the Arena Hotel from 29 dec/4jan 2015 and the hotel was a perfect choice. The location is excellent, it's walking distance from all major monuments:Blue Mosque, Cisterna, TopKapi, Hagia Sofya. The tram station T1, which we found very handy for visiting other parts of Istanbul, is near too. Very good hotel, very good breakfast, excellent... More

Large room with big double bed and 2 sofas, only 1 wardrobe. Bathroom was small in comparison to the room. Had a jacuzzi bath which... More

Nice hotel in a great location, near Hagia Sofia, the Palace, and Blue Mosque. The staff was kind and helpful. We stayed in a small room on the lower level. It was clean and charming but a little crowded. I am glad we stayed here and would do so again.
